Android is an Operating System based on the Linux kernel. It was designed primarily for mobile devices with touchscreen, such as smart phones, tablets and also for smart watches, televisions and cars. Initially developed by Android Inc., a company Google backed financially and later, in 2005, it bought.
Android was introduced in 2007 alongside the founding of the Open Handset Alliance (a consortium of hardware, software and telecommunications companies) to advance in The open standards of mobile devices.
The first mobile with the Android operating system was the HTC Dream and was sold in October 2008.
